Had longtime regular Elia Shehady back with dad Al and buddies Steve and Chuck. Steve started us off with a 32 incher right off the bat, after that it was a death pick getting 2 more keepers and a bunch of shorts.
The Golden Eagle couldn t find any stripers today, but bottom fishing for blackfish, ling and cod was good before it got nasty on the ocean. Capt. Ron Santee started out this morning with decent striper action on bait until the current ran stronger into the wind.
